The Wise Children

I was sitting in a cafe today reading a wonderful book about indigo children – a book that made me smile from ear to ear. What amazing and insightful words had come out of children’s mouths, I was totally inspired.

So as much as I don’t like to quote from books, I want to share some today! The words are from the book, An Indigo Celebration by Dee Carroll and Jan Tober and it is such a delightful book, I would highly recommend reading it!
So I want to share three quotes from three young children and the question asked was, “what is love?” And the answers are beautiful, funny and powerful. I love all three quotes!
What is Love? When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands get arthritis too. That’s love.
What is Love? Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.(Funny!!)
What is Love? If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.
Straight from the mouths of children… thank-you children for the inspiration.
Arohanui,
Jo x
